Important things to remember about your Swift Digital integration
Before we begin, it’s important to first understand that there are some limitations with the Swift Digital integration.
Rate limits control how many API calls are allowed between two systems in a particular time period. They exist to regulate the transfer of data so that systems don’t get overwhelmed.
Compared to other email service providers, Swift Digital has a comparatively low rate limit. This means that activations (i.e. sending profiles) with a large number of profiles to Swift Digital can take hours, even days, or even fail if they exceed the maximum time limit for activations.
PU IDs are a hidden identifier assigned to all customer profiles within Swift Digital. Whenever new profiles are created, Swift Digital will create a new PU ID for that profile.
This means that any profile sent to Swift Digital from the Lexer Hub that doesn’t already exist in Swift Digital will need a new PU ID assigned to them. As we’ll need to make additional API calls to Swift Digital to confirm the profiles do not exist, this further slows down activations.
What does this all mean?
If you are sending a large number of profiles, it is likely that the activation will run very slowly, or even fail. This risk is greater if the profiles do not already exist in Swift Digital (i.e. are new, therefore they require PU IDs to be assigned).
In order to run activations safely and efficiently, we recommend that you:
- Run large activations over the weekend.
- Ensure profiles exist in both Swift Digital and Lexer, so a new PU ID does not need to be created during the activation. The easiest way to do this is to use the CSV Export function in Lexer and upload these into Swift Digital before running the activation. To learn more about the CSV export tool, click here.
We understand these limitations are frustrating, so please contact your Lexer Success lead and Swift Digital contact to discuss the best possible set up for you.
